Yea, I'm from Fort Wayne. This sounds more like something that would happen in Texas, where I'm living now. Two to Eight years for shooting someone point blank in the chest after you already "bumped" them with your 4000lb car is an embarrassment also, I don't care how rude and abnoxious the biker was!

Let me get this straight...A guy on a LOUD bike revs it at a stoplight. When asked to 'keep it quite' (which was probably impossible even at idle) he tells the guy off. Has the rider broken any laws so far? Not unless there is some local noise ordinance. Enraged car driver then FOLLOWS the rider and HITS his PARKED bike. A now understandably angry biker confronts the man. What he does next IS wrong: he grabs the driver by his shirt and threatens him. But how many of you could honestly remain calm in his shoes? I don't know if I could. The rider is then SHOT!!!

Who broke the law first? This isn't about loud pipes or rider manners. It's about a CRIMINAL who lost control, killed someone (see article title), and is getting off with 2-8 for 'criminal recklessness'. How about 'Manslaughter 2' at the very least. He'll probably be out in less than 2 for 'good behavior'. I don't like loud pipes either, and even if I did, my manners are better than this rider. That said, most of your posts thus far have been appalling. Think about it......

I agree with everything except that if you read carefully the biker didn't die. The title of the article is misapplied to sound "funny".



Still the shooter should get harsher punishment. We are breeding idiots that think it's ok to carry a gun and use it when they get angry.



Burn the f*cker to the stake!

(and smack the biker for being a jerk)

Default Ft. Wayne, IN

Why is it that Hoosiers only seem to come in two types:

1- those who were born there then fled at the first chance (me)

2- those who were born there and think it's be best/only place in the world to live? (my brother, who happens to live in Ft. Wayne)



Yee-Haw! redneck heaven!

I'm a third type: Those who fled, me to Texas, realized what real rednecks are, and how much the cost of living is everywhere else, that you think you'd want to live, sucks!

Were is the ama on this. If the ama does not act on this then we should all consider no longer joining the ama. This is not about load pipes.

Well, anecdotally speaking, most kids usually turn down their stereo when I break out their windows with my tire iron at a stoplight.
